An arrest that started with a ticket for drinking under age turned into much more serious gun charges.
Police arrested 19-year-old Christopher Freeman of Washington for underage consumption of alcohol. During the encounter with police, officials say they found evidence to charge freeman with carrying a concealed weapon, possession of a firearm by a felon and possession of a stolen firearm.
Freeman was jailed in the Beaufort County Detention Center under a $25,000 bond.
